Workato has appointed Allan Teng (above left) as Founder and Senior Advisor for Workato Asia Pacific and Japan, and Amlan Debnath (above right) as Managing Director for Workato Asia Pacific and Japan.
Teng will move to Tokyo to head up Workato’s expanding business in Japan, while remaining part of the regional team. He will continue to provide strategic counsel and leadership to the regional business, with an added focus on catalysing growth in the Japan market as General Manager and Vice President of Workato Japan. As Workato’s Founder of the region, Teng built up Workato’s presence in Asia Pacific and Japan from the ground up, and was instrumental in orchestrating Workato’s growth in the region.
“As I take on the leadership mantle in Japan, a region that holds immense potential for growth, I will be focused on expanding our business sustainably and establishing Workato as the premier integration and automation leader in the country. I’m excited to pass the baton to my mentor, Amlan, to drive the next stage of expansion for Workato across the Asia Pacific & Japan region,” said Teng.
Amlan Debnath had worked closely with Teng to start Workato’s presence in the region with its Customer Success Center. Prior to this appointment, Debnath had been instrumental in Workato’s growth as Senior Vice President of Global Field Operations and Customer Success for the past eight years. Debnath has moved to Singapore and will help grow the APJ business from Workato’s second headquarters in Singapore.
He is a respected leader in the technology space with extensive experience in strategic planning, software development and business growth and an impressive track record of creating industry-leading products. Over the span of his career, Debnath has driven the growth of top integration and platform-as-a-service products for companies such as TIBCO, Oracle and Salesforce.
“Asia Pacific & Japan is a fast-growing and exciting region for Workato. Over the past few years, we have seen rapidly rising demand from companies here to incorporate automation and integration into their business processes. As we navigate a volatile and uncertain economic climate, my focus will be on deepening our relationships with customers, driving organisational efficiency and maintaining Workato’s leadership in the iPaaS industry and lead Workato’s business through its next phase of growth,” said Debnath.
